PRAISE: There have been no safety, crisis, or major team issues on any of our mission trips so far. 2 of the 5 trips have wrapped up, the other 3 end in June.

These teams are making friends with local students, building relationships, and having spiritual conversations.

I will be helping students process their experience and I will be in charge of leading the staff debrief portion. Pray for my travel, and wisdom in preparing. Continue to pray for the increase in personal financial support I need. Pray that God would lead me to people who are interested in partnering with me in ministry.
